I decided with news of Yes! leaving, and then staying (at least temporarily) I would take this opportunity to try and pay them another visit. What I found was most of the shelves bare and signs advertising 50% off of most products. Emboldened by a clearance sale I decided this was a perfect opportunity to get a little adventurous with my food options. I would have never before dared gluten-free pizza and gluten and diary free cookies. As I filled my grocery basket I quickly tweeted the sale to my friends and called my co-workers to let them know that now was a perfect time to say, "yes" to Yes!
As I was checking out the cashier informed me that Wednesday would be the last day for Yes! in Fairlawn. I asked her when the store would be reopening (I hadn't yet seen the storefront signs indicating December 22nd as the reopening date) and she said Yes! would not be reopening ( I suppose that would explain the bare shelves). The cashier was pretty emphatic that despite the recent reports of Yes! hanging on a little longer they were indeed closing for good on Wednesday, December 12th.
Not sure if Yes! is saying good night for good or just temporarily while they revamp but I can say with certainty those gluten and diary free cookies weren't half bad. Like traveling to Yes! those cookies may have been a little hard to swallow at first but in the end it was kind of worth it (at least for 50% off). :)
Including pictures of what just may have been my last visit to Yes! in Fairlawn.
P.S. In case you were wondering I do my grocery shopping at the Safeway in Southwest.
